What you will learn during the UX/UI Design bootcamp in Mexico City

Prework

In the first 40 hours of your UX/UI design training, you’ll learn the basics of design thinking, interaction design and state-of-the-art design software. Once you’ve received instructions for setting up your tools, you’ll complete specially designed exercises to:

1. create your first usability evaluations and site redesign

2. develop your design sensitivity through fascinating activities

3. perform basic HTML and CSS practice work that is essential for the bootcamp’s design implementation section.

Once you’ve wrapped up these online prep materials, you’ll be all set to start the course off right!

Module 1: Understand user experience

During weeks one and two, you will learn the fundamental UX/UI industry frameworks: design thinking, agile methodologies and lean structuring. Then hone your UX research methods, interaction design principles and information architecture.

Topics include:

- Applying design thinking in conjunction with lean structures and agile methods.

- Learning user-centered design and conducting research on the needs of your users and businesses.

- Sharpening your skills in interaction design and information architecture.

- Building your first interactive prototypes for testing.

In week three your first project begins! Manage your first product design project with agile methodology to discover your users and then plan a product roadmap to solve their problems. Finish up with guerrilla testing and presentations to enhance your public speaking skills.

Module 2: Learn to design user interfaces

In weeks four and five you will uncover the fundamentals of branding and design for UI close-loop design. Then implement this knowledge to generate engaging, elegant and scalable user interfaces.

Topics include:

- Generating original ideas for digital products and bringing them to production.

- Mastering design systems in order to create a fully animated interactive prototype.

- Testing your prototype to balance market demands and desirability.

Week six calls for your second project: creating a state-of-the-art website design with engaging animations and a refined style! Document the entire process to ensure a smooth hand-off to “Development.” Then, after completing your project, you will present it to the “shareholders.”

Module 3: Design implementation

The final module begins in weeks seven and eight, where you’ll start implementing your designs in real life. Build your first responsive one-page website by utilizing the developers’ best practices you’ve learned.

Topics include:

- Designing your site for production.

- Considering technological constraints from the very beginning.

- Preparing all of the correct assets.

- Learning essential soft skills, such as portfolio fine-tuning and client connections.

Your final, and by far most challenging project takes place during the last week of the module and the course. Develop a digital product for a problem of your choosing. When you finish your project, you will compete alongside your classmates in our live Hackshow. Do you have what it takes to win?

Why should you study UX/UI Design in Mexico City

Design renaissanceMexico City, a city in renaissance, has found its future in tech. However, the world is still bidding on what will be the biggest defining feature of Mexico City’s tech landscape. But looking at the city’s artistic culture and history the answer is clear—design. The World Design Organization named Mexico City the World Design Capital of 2018. According to Euromonitor International, the online market in Mexico is expected to be worth around $14 billion by 2022. This means a massive amount of UX and UI design will need to be configured for the market, opening up hundreds of positions for designers in the city.
Continuous tech investmentThe financial structures of Mexico City continue to bring in investors, companies and top talent. Since 2014, Mexico’s government has invested over $600M to startups, entrepreneurs and tech companies. According to their data, this has generated more than 6,000 companies and 73,000 jobs. In turn, Mexico is one of Latin America’s most affordable countries, with rent prices in Mexico City standing 83% lower than San Francisco. Altogether, the ecosystem is ripe for new talent to find their way.
Innovative community eventsMexico’s capital has seen a massive expansion in its tech sector, and with that comes an equally impressive influx of events and communities to support the entrepreneurs and designers within it. One of the best is UXnights, an organization of UX professionals that share their knowledge and experience. Their events showcase projects from varying sectors that have applied UX/UI principles. Their focus is revealing the challenges and professional practice behind the work, not just the theory and best practices.
